Poco F2 Pro: Poco F1’s successor now confirmed for a global May 12th launch

The Poco F2 Pro is tipped to be the Redmi K30 Pro’s rebranded version.

Only hours after its purported color variants and pricing were leaked to the wild, the Poco F2 Pro is finally confirmed for a May 12th global launch.

In one of POCO’s latest tweets, Xiaomi’s former subsidiary hinted via a clip that the Poco F2 Pro is indeed slated to arrive on the aforementioned date. The phone’s debut is eagerly anticipated for a reason that couldn’t be more obvious. The device is set to succeed the hugely popular Pocophone F1 which was launched in August 2018.

Almost two years after its predecessor’s debut, is the Poco F2 Pro a worthy follow up?

Rebranded Redmi K30 Pro

Speculations are rife that the imminent Poco F2 Pro is the rebranded version of the Redmi K30 Pro. If this truly pans out, then it is a no-brainer that the Pocophone F1 successor should thrive well on the market. Unless, of course, POCO associates the forthcoming phone with a disappointing pricing.

Based on the phone’s recent leaks, it is tipped that the Poco F2 Pro will cost EUR 570 for its 128GB variant. Other reports also speculated that the phone could arrive with a EUR 649 price tag for its 6GB/128GB edition. Meanwhile, the device’s 8GB/256GB variant might get retailed for EUR 749.

Rumored specifications

Apart from its pricing, the Poco F2 Pro’s color options were also revealed. Accordingly, the phone will launch with Blue, Grey, Purple, and White paint jobs.

To keep you in the loop, the Redmi K30 Pro is one of Redmi’s latest affordable flagships from the now-established Redmi K3 series. The phone features a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display, with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels. Its display also sports Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and 500 nits of typical brightness. The screen is also HDR10+-compliant.

Under the hood, the Redmi K30 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chip, with Adreno 650 GPU. It packs 6GB/8GB of RAM tiers and 128GB/256GB of UFS 3.0 and 3.1 storage options.

On its rear, the phone features a quadruple-camera setup. This is front-lined by a 64MP wide camera and is flanked by 5MP telephoto macro, 13MP ultrawide, and 2MP depth sensors. The phone also boasts a motorized pop-up camera module which houses a 20MP selfie snapper.

Other key features of the Redmi K30 Pro include an optical in-display fingerprint reader, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and USB Type-C.

It works on a 4,700mAh battery with 33W fast wired charging and runs on MIUI 11, based on the latest Android 10.0.
